Not Free Energy[edit]

Wasn't Newman's claim that the motor could output more energy than it needed for input? So technically it wouldn't be classified as free energy, but over-unity? (just being trivial; of course, calling it something else wouldn't make it any less ridiculous).Stilldeciding (talk) 18:22, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

I thought that was almost the definition of free energy: more out than in = something for nothing = FREE ENERGY. No? 18:32, 8 July 2010 (UTC) SusanG Toast
True, true. I was just thinking that since he was using conventional batteries it wouldn't exactly be free energy; then I checked RW's definition of Free Energy and realized that over-unity is the same thing. Stilldeciding (talk) 18:39, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
